The Anti-Corruption Department does not cope with the duties that were originally assigned to it – it cannot provide control over the effective use of budget funds and the prevention of their irrational use. This was stated by the opposition of Mykolayiv.
Even after law enforcement officers conducted searches at the public utility enterprise on catering in schools in Mykolayiv and revealed facts of poor-quality food supplies to the schools and illegal expenditure of budgetary funds, the head of this Department did not admit any violations. Moreover, the official said that the Anti-Corruption Department was unable to detect the embezzlement of budget funds, which was recorded by law enforcement officers.
The official was also unable to show the results of other checks of numerous frauds with budget funds, the evidence of which the deputies from the OPPOSITION BLOC regularly recorded and submitted to the Department.
At the same time, the maintenance of the specified Department costs the taxpayers of Mykolayiv a half million hryvnia annually!
Therefore, at the session of the city council, the oppositionists demanded to consider the report of the director of the Anti-Corruption Department and review its functions. After all, there is no reason to maintain a structure that is not able to cope with its duties.The proposal of the opposition was supported by members of the budget Commission.
